Herschel Walker, the Republican candidate for Georgia’s U.S. Senate race who states he opposes abortion under any scenarios, pressed a female he was dating in 2009 to get an abortion and after that repaid her for the treatment, The Daily Beast reported.
A lady who asked not to be determined informed the news outlet that the previous NFL star advised her to get an abortion after they developed a kid while they were dating more than a years earlier. She stated she had the treatment and Walker repaid her for it, supporting her claim with a $575 invoice from an abortion center dated Sept. 12, 2009, a “recover” card supposedly signed by Walker and a bank deposit invoice including a picture of a signed $700 individual check from Walker dated Sept. 17, 2009.
The card states “Pray you are feeling much better,” and it’s signed with an “H” that carefully looks like Walker’s sign, according to an image released by The Daily Beast.
The lady stated Walker mailed her the check inside the card.
Walker called the accusation a “flat-out lie” and stated he rejected the report “in the greatest possible terms.”
“I’m not taking this any longer. I preparing to take legal action against the Daily Beast for this defamatory lie. It will be submitted tomorrow early morning,” he composed in a Twitter declaration.
Pressed about the story on Fox News, Walker stated Democrats had actually “endangered my kids” and stated, “They believe they can frighten me.”
“I send numerous recover, I send a lot of anything,” he stated when asked if it was his signature on the card. “I never ever asked anybody to get an abortion. I never ever spent for an abortion. And it’s a lie.”
Walker informed press reporters in May he supported a restriction on abortion without any exceptions, probably consisting of when a pregnancy is the outcome of rape or incest or threatens the health of the mom.
“There’s no exception in my mind,” he stated after a project speech in Macon, Georgia. “Like I state, I think in life. I think in life.”
Herschel Walker’s project has actually been stuck in scandal, consisting of over simply the number of kids he’s fathered.

“Every relative of Herschel Walker asked him to not to run for workplace, since all of us understood (a few of) his past,” Christian Walker tweeted. “Every single one. He chose to provide us the middle finger and air out all of his unclean laundry in public, while all at once lying about it.”
